5 Night Western Caribbean (Galveston Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 30, 2011
Ship: Carnival Ecstasy
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Large Group

The ship was small and easily travelled. We had our parents who were brand new to cruising and celebrating their 50th anniversary on board. They were able to locate and get to the various facilities quickly and easily.

Disappointed in variety of entertainment. Only 2 shows in main theater for a 5 day cruise. Poolside music was the same 2 guys with canned music and a guitar and keyboard for 5 days. Became very annoyinging if you spent any time on deck at all. Also evening shows were sparse. They had 1 man playing a guitar with a computer for accompaniment. Blah.... We could not find anything until very late at night.

Bathroom facilities in public areas were lacking in quantity. Also fixtures were in bad repair. Some were loose and non functioning.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Ship appeared to be older. Rooms were small. We had 3 in a cabin and the 3rd bed was on the floor. It remained their throughout the trip. Very crowded.

Pros: small and intimate

Cons: entertainment
